5x7 Snow Leopard
My beautiful Annie, from the EFBC in Rosamond, CA is featured in many of my projects. Her deep expressive eyes and stunning coat pattern make her another perfect scratchboard subject. This small 5" x 7" piece is mounted on a 9" x 12" scratchboard and then framed without glass for a welcoming up close view. Working in this size is quite a challenge, I have respect for other scratchboard artists who work this small. With so little space to plan out the detail and develop contrast I had to readjust my thinking, large pieces are definitely my comfort zone even though they take hundreds of hours to complete. Next will be some small color pieces, great for collectors! Requests are welcome.
